I pitched a shirt to Stan once. Even made prototypes.
There are a couple left. I’ll put the proceeds towards the SuperLiterate Project. http://superliterateproject.org
Stan Lee is My Homeboy- the forbidden homage
Adrienne Curry LOVED them, everyone on his staff (at the time) dug them too, even STAN thought it was cool. But the corporate giants involved didn’t want to deal with a little guy like me. Stan didn’t even get a say. It was at the first Comikaze in LA. They had an after party with Peter Murphy as the headliner.
SO rad, only a hundred or so attending in a small venue. Stan joined Peter, and Peter bowed in his presence. I still think this shirt is a cool homage. I wear mine.
Here we go again!
A Marvelous Team Up with Pinup Girl Clothing at Booth1502
From Popular Naughty, punk/burlesque streetwear we have 5 updated shirt designs including this bad boy.
Then it will be off to TIKI OASIS!
I heart Tiki Oasis! One of the last great kitschy good times.
Held in he entirety of the Hanalai Hotel in San Diego and splashing out into all the surrounding hotels and their respective bars, this annual tiki lifestyle extravaganza is an opportunity of a lifetime.
It is an enthusiastic giant size 3 day hotel party with tons of garage/punk/lounge performers, pin up girls and boys, collectibles, and…. tiki style clothing and streetwear.
Thursday, August 10 – Sunday, August 13th, 2017
In the Hanalai, which was just recently sold, which also means the debauchery level and beautiful chaos may never be this intense ever again. Corporate Debbie Downers will probably put the kibosh on the unrivaled revelry.
Be there by all means. If you make it, stop by the Popular Naughty / Danger Factory booth and buy THIS for example.
It’s a winner! But why wait? Buy this monkey RIGHT HERE! (click it baby)
So much retro street smart style. Love the whole thing.
Buy this grey space monkey RIGHT HERE! (click it star baby)
Buy this poorly photographed white tiki -space invader t-shirt

Sooo swamped with setting up the shop. But really, I have gotten a lot of complaints about not doing the modern online shop thing. A SUPER pain that deserved my procrastination, although Godaddy and SHopify have made things a lot easier. It WILL be done by June 15, 2017 and we will be also do pre-orders for the new design production to bring to the San Diego Comic Con in July. Remember, these are the original style of printing. Screen printing. Not the ooky on demand stuff that feels like a rubber badge and weathers so poorly. This is forever print. Even though I have been doing this kind of design for decades, I am in search engine competition with all of those insty-print joints. Especially for the word burlesque, and burlesque t-shirts.
As a result, I have to kinda lay it on thick here with overly descriptive terms. I will try to at least keep it entertaining though.
Once the site is fully functional we can better create this sharing site for Geeks, Freaks, the Tongue in Cheeks, and other explorers of art and music. Comic News too. There is some great alternative stuff out there not getting enough attention. We’ll help.

Popular Naughty is a streetwear company that specializes in that kinda dive bar, burlesque club, vintage, punk rock in yer frackin’ face designs We are toying with bringing the online shop here. Hey, if it is good enough for Miss Mia Vixen, it should be good enough for anyone.
Just sayin’. Yeah it is super important that she is also a geek, that’s what gets her to THIS site, but the facts are she is pretty much a perfect creature. These pics are an example.. no make up, no prep time, now warning. Just, “Hey Justine! We have two minutes, can you throw these on so I can maybe get a pic for a postcard?” Snap, snap, click, click, oy and here they are- a super pretty girl with every nerd’s dream qualities. She even does improv now with Comic Book Live! The very same troupe that OG Geek Chris Gore is in.
You will see lots more of her, hang tight. And SOMEBODY needs to book her for a Cosplay shoot. Maybe we should do a Kickstarter campaign for that. We need that.Oh, and the shirt she is wearing is the Vintage Destroyer. from Popular Naughty.
So I went to Comikaze 2012 last weekend, partially to run up some display stuff and maybe help out a bit for the cast and crew of Bad Kids Go To Hell, my new fave indie cult hit; and also to see if it would be worth getting a booth for Popular Naughty.
I would have to say it is a good booth idea. The show itself is kinda old school Comic Con… easy to see it all, a very casual atmosphere to speak with the artists and creators, tons of super geek chic shopping options, and a reasonable load of panels to see. It did have a shortage of actual COMICS, but I am sure that will grow. Stan Lee IS one of the show’s owners now.
I LOVED that they had an pre-show concert. Pop art and alternative music have always been delightful bedfellows, so Peter Murphy was a perfect choice. Here are a few pics.
Now get this. Adrianne Curry, one of the show’s organizers, Stan, and Peter took the stage and Stan Lee and Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy sang a duet of That Old Black Magic.
Wow, the voice of legendary post punk goth group Bauhaus kneeling to the Nerd King.
A very cool alien salesman by the makeup peeps from Face Off.
Bad Kid Go TO Hell co-writer Matthew Spradlin had a casual victim/zombie relationship with a couple of roaming zombies.
There was also the cute geek factor.
Here is Bad Kids Go To Hell actress Amanda Alch lookin’ all retro megahoot.
Yes, I DO have a thing for redheads. Here is the ubercute Alana from Face Off.
Come visit us with THREADLESS at booth 1617!!
Here is a teaser…
